- The fight against molestation has been more seriously by the Nigerian government
- To make this obvious, the National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking (NAPTIP) has released a full list of molesters convicted in the country
- NAPTIP said that it will not stop publishing names of persons who are bent on the crime
The federal government is not leaving any stone unturned in the fight against abuse and assault on the female folks which is becoming a disturbing trend in the country.
Dame Julie Okan-Donli, the director-general of the National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons (NAPTIP) on Saturday, June 6, published a comprehensive list of molesters who have been convicted so far in the country.
On her Twitter page, Okan-Donli revealed that more names will be published as convictions keep coming.
The NAPTIP boss said that most of the culprits of this mindless act are carried out behind closed doors and mostly go unnoticed.
Speaking on the efforts of the agency to eradicate the cancer worm, she said: “Our job in NAPTIP is to protect Nigerian men and women, we are not going to compromise our work if they report such cases and we will ensure justice is done.
“R'pe cases are not reported because of stigmatisation of the victims and this makes the cases rise. And very soon, the names of rapists will be published with their pictures in the media.”
In response to the global issue, the minister of state for Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Ramatu Aliyu, said that more grievous punishment should be meted out to persons caught engaging in the crime.
In fact, Aliyu suggested that molesters should be castrated as a definite way to deter others from condescending to such a dehumanising act.
The minister went on to reveal that the FCT administration was working closely with NAPTIP on this disturbing issue.
She said: “In conjunction with all the security outfits and NAPTIP, we are on the watch, and for any offender that we get, we will take it to any length to ensure that he is not fit to live.
“It is not enough to just jail such person, definitely punishment like castration will do. When we kill them, they die and not remembering anything. Therefore, they should be castrated and roam the streets and remain inactive."
